This week's reviewed movie is:
Fast and Furious

Fast and Furious just doesn't have any intelligence whatsoever.

Although big at the box office, it's still a chintzy silly piece of writing.

I would have had no problem with a good hot-car chase thriller, but with a story line that neglects to make any sense whatsoever, it made this just one big waste of time train wreck -- I mean car wreck.

As non-fuel-efficient films go, this one is fast and furious.

If you are looking for plot or good acting -- this isn't it. It's all about cars, racing, and action scenes.

Fans of the series will love it. Anyone else . . .

Wait, isn't that Vin Diesel in a Hummer?

The title says it all in the movie Fast and Furious.

The film has very fast cars and some very furious characters, but there's only so much any picture can do with fast car chases and explosive action scenes.

After awhile, there's a repetitive quality to the chases, which are well choreographed and photographed, but the plot is spiritless and the flick isn't very interesting when the furious characters aren't racing.
